Overview

There is stairs-only access between platforms via the bridge.

For step-free access between platforms, we understand you can drive north to Atholl Road, which crosses the tracks some distance from the station, beyond the scope of this survey. Follow our step-free directions from your platform, then follow our step-free directions to the other platform.

These directions are therefore limited to routes via the bridge.

The doors will open on your left as you face the front of the train. There is tactile paving along the concrete section of each platform but not on the wooden section of the platform beside the front of longer southbound trains, or rear of longer northbound ones.

From Platform 1, Southbound

From the Front of the Train

As you go from the front of longer trains, you get out onto the wooden section of the platform. We understand the 3 car stop point is near the end of the concrete section of the platform.

You pass a series of posts, plus the historic drinking fountain, before you reach the station building. Continue, past a recess and the shop.

Follow the wall, which juts out twice then retreats again, before the steps to the bridge, in front of you.

You go up a flight of steps, turn left then go up five steps onto the bridge. Continue, down five steps, turn left and go down a flight of steps then turn left onto platform 2. We believe you're beside the front half of the train.

GO TO END

From the Rear of the Train

As you go from the rear of the train, we understand you pass the gap to Station Road before you reach the station building. Keep left to avoid the rear of the steps and continue till the wall juts out in front of you. Turn right, continue to the corner then turn right again for the steps, in front of you.

You go up a flight of steps, turn left then go up five steps onto the bridge. Continue, down five steps, turn left and go down a flight of steps then turn left onto platform 2. We believe you're beside the front half of the train.

GO TO END

From Platform 2, Northbound

As you go from the front of the train, you pass a gravel area before the platform widens behind the steps to the bridge, which are in the middle of the wider platform. We suggest you keep right to avoid walking under these steps.

As you go from the rear of the train, you pass the waiting room before you reach the foot of the steps, in front of you.

Go up a flight of steps, turn right and go up five steps onto the bridge. Continue, down five steps, turn right and go down a flight of steps, to platform level then turn right onto the platform. We believe you're beside the rear half of the train.
